“Salt Point State Park’s wide-open meadows, thundering surf, brisk ocean breezes and stunning views represent Mother Nature at her best.” – Salt Point Brochure

Took a camping trip up to the Northern California Coast at Woodside Campground in Salt Point State Park at the end of July. In all there were 7 of us and the campsite we got, which are first-come, first served, was probably the best around. Very spacious and pretty private with only seeing one other group of campers from the picnic table and fire ring. It had plenty of space for our 4 coolers, 4 tents, 2 hammocks and a plethora of food.

The bathrooms here are great, with flushing toilets and hot water. There aren’t any showers though. This area is good for mushroom foraging in the winter and makes a good place to camp for hikes or diving around Salt Point. The other campgrounds in the area are less forested and can get extremely windy. We hiked to the Pygmy forest and down to Salt Point on Saturday. The eating was great thanks to Kristin and Christina for the most part…we ate pretty healthy. The only downside was both Mike and I cut off a fingertip in the process…

If you’re looking for good coastal camping, Salt Point has everything you need.
